In sports injuries are a part of a sportsperson’s life. Whether we talk about cricket, football or any other game all have a long association with it. Players remain very precautious about their fitness and injuries so that it never affects their performance for long periods.
A sportsperson is quite often seen aggressive but who knows that sometimes it can go against them as well. Recently, an instance came from the domestic tournament of Australia where the star Aussie all-rounder Mitch Marsh got injured due to his own mistake and aggression.
Mitchell Marsh injures his right hand
In a Sheffield Shield match between Tasmania and West Australia, the incident happened during the second innings when Jackson Bird with an athletic display got Mitchell Marsh caught and bowled. The right-handed batter left the field in aggression and when he reached the dressing room he banged his hand into the wall because of which he got his hand injured in due course of time. After some time, the Western Australia Cricket Association confirmed the injury of their all-rounder but had no clear views on his availability. The recovery time of the player will be determined after further investigation.
In the match, Marsh had performed decently well with the bat and ball. He took a total of two wickets and scored 41 and 53 runs in the respective innings of the match. However, the match ended in a draw, with WA scoring 337 & 383/9 and Tasmania making 397 in their only innings with Jackson Bird was given the Man of the Match who took a total of eight wickets in the duration of the encounter. After the match, Western Australia and Tasmania were ranked on 3rd and 4th positions on the charts in the six-side tournament.
The Aussie all-rounder was also the part of the Ashes team for the fifth Test where he bowled an astonishing spell and took five wickets for 46 runs but ended on the losing side. But due to his inconsistency, he has been not able to find his spot in Australia’s T20I squad for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
